The Wilson Center Africa Program enhances the understanding of critical African policy issues within the United States in order to build stronger, more mutually beneficial U.S.-Africa relations. The Africa Program centers its work on four programmatic pillars:

- Good Governance and Leadership
- Conflict prevention and Peacebuilding
- Trade, Investment, and Sustainable Development
- Africa's Evolving Role in the Global Arena

Underlying these pillars is a cross-cutting focus on the roles of women, youth, and technology in Africa's changing political and economic landscape.

Interns will be assigned to work directly with the Africa Program Staff in support of all project activities for a minimum of 20 hours per week.
